Is It Better to Rekey or Install New Locks?

The decision ultimately depends on your particular needs, expectations, and budget. For enhanced security or when dealing with stolen or missing keys, changing the locks with new locks of a higher security grade is the way to go. However, changing locks is not always necessary or feasible cost-wise. The key pins found inside locks are extremely affordable. This makes lock rekeying the quicker, simpler, and cheaper alternative for adding extra security to your home.

What is Lock Rekeying? 

Home Lockout ServicesLock rekeying refers to the process of replacing the pins inside a locking mechanism with new sets, rendering the old keys unusable. The old lock stays in place, while the working keys are replaced with brand new keys.

Installing New Home locks

New lock installation is done by physically removing all of the door lock’s hardware including bolts, cylinders, and doorknobs, and replacing them with fresh components.

Does a Lockout Service Technician Do All the Work at Your Home? 

Yes. Our 24-hour emergency lockout service technicians arrive in their mobile units with all the necessary tools needed to complete the work on location. They can install strike plates in the door jamb, insert the latch in the door together with exterior lever, and create the mortise for the latch faceplate - on the spot!

How Can You Prevent Home Lockouts?

  • Cut duplicate copies of your keys and always have a spare key on hand.
  • Be mindful of the exact locations of your spare keys. Leave one or two copies with someone trustworthy who lives nearby.
  • Consider hiding a spare key somewhere on your property. Be extra careful about the chosen hiding spot to prevent the keys from getting stolen or misplaced.
  • Schedule periodical lock maintenance checks on all locksets to make sure they are fully functional.
  • Fix, replace, or rekey any broken, jammed, or faulty locks and keys before they turn into a house lockout problem.
  • Put our emergency house lockout number on speed dial.

Are Digital Locks Better Than Key Locks?

While digital locks provide a series of added security features compared to classic key locks, ultimately, no lock is 100% secure. Similar to key locks that can be picked open, digital locks can also be hacked. On the other hand, coded-entry locks, locks operated via smartphones or proximity cards, and biometric locks offer simplified access to your home as they are easy to access in the dark. They also eliminate the stress of losing physical keys or having to fumble around with keys. Electronic locks also keep track of everyone who has been in and out of the house. Adding or changing combinations on electronic locks is done with ease, without the need to hire home locksmiths. Mechanical door locks like mortise, deadbolt, cylinder, or spring locks have been successfully used for thousands of years. They have a longer lifespan compared to digital locks. They do not require any batteries or access codes to be memorized. Rekeying or replacing a key lock is done with ease.
